I got my Kit and a FlashcatUSB XPORT.
But I have trouble to program the 28EW512 Flash Modules.
The FlascatUSB(Build 638 Firmware 5.28 in Parallel Nor device Mode is not detecting the flash device, set to 3Volt
Windows 7
Tried to update the FlashcatUSB Firmware, but can't find a newer firmware...
What am i doing wrong.
Please help

I found the flashcatUSB Forum, and there you can download all versions of FlashcatUSB.
https://www.blackcatusb.net/index.php?threads/official-fcusb-pro-and-classic-latest-all-in-one.457/
I tried the same firmwares as documentation
Changed to Parallel NOR Mode as mentioned in Instruction NamcoSystem1_v1.2 (FlashcatUSB Build 606 and Board Firmware 5.17)
and in the instruction Video,
Changed to Parallel NOR Mode as mentioned in youtube video (FlashcatUSB Build 608 and Board Firmware 5.18)
but the flash chip still not detected.

I resolderd all pins of the namco adapter for the flashcatUsb but didn't help :(

Need somebody to help me flash the adapters...
Don't

I can’t seem to get Face Off controls to work. Any help? In the test menu the start button for P1 and P2 moves the cursor and no other controls for either player work. Because of this I also can’t flip the screen in the options.

Face Off doesn't work with traditional joystick controls. It requires a special Namco interface board to work properly. Ditto for Questar.

Right on, thanks for the explanation. I also discovered Bravoman was the same but the hacked controls on the rom allow the 2nd stick inputs to complete the controls. Didn’t realize Namco had unorthodox controls for any of their System 1 games. Bummer.

Also, thanks so much for posting the link to the Seeq chip for Galaga ‘88 owners. Was really sad to find that the game I was most looking forward to didn’t work as-is but was pumped to find that the chips are available and not expensive.
